8 years without a trophy? Here’s a new contract Arsene…

Posted  February 18, 2013  by  TO

Over the past few months, without real explanation, my personal levels of enthusiasm for the beautiful game has somewhat waned. It’s surprising, considering that 2012 was such a good year for my club West Ham.  Winning the championship play off final at Wembley and then doing reasonably well in the Premier League, you’d think that […]

Fantasy Premier League tips – Gameweek 17

Posted  December 15, 2012  by  CG

For gameweek 17, we’re backing the wounded animal. Following their crushing stoppage time defeat to their Manchester (and title) rivals, we’d expect Manchester City to begin putting things right in the league away at Newcastle. City have won nine of their last 11 matches against the Magpies, while Alan Pardew’s side has registered just three […]

Fantasy Premier League tips – Gameweek 16

Posted  December 7, 2012  by  CG

For Gameweek 16, it’s worth noting that both Sunderland and Reading will be involved in a double gameweek. Of course, their fixtures aren’t exactly looking easy, particularly given their current league positions and poor form. We’d avoid loading your fantasy side with Mackems and Royals, but then we’d also be careful about ditching any of […]

Posted  December 1, 2012  by  CG

A few of our recommended changes from Gamweek 14 were thrown out there with one eye on this weekend’s fixtures. Admittedly, the Norwich, Liverpool and Chelsea players we recommended won’t have done you much good in midweek fantasy football, and while we’re wary of copping out, we would rehash some of the same advice for […]

Hey Arsenal Fans – Spending Money = 3 Points right?

Posted  August 25, 2013  by  GM

Up until now we have had Arsenal fans banging on about how they haven’t spent any money in the transfer window and that the only thing that will deliver success is money.  In week 1 Arsenal crumble to Villa and in week 2 free spending city go down 3-2 to free-spending-but-in-a-different-league Cardiff City. So what […]

Balotelli’s stamp again highlights the need for video technology

Posted  January 23, 2012  by  TO

We’ve talked about video technology a lot on this site recently, but it’s almost getting to a stage where not a week goes by without a major incident highlighting the flaws of the modern day game.  The rules are simply outdated and FIFA and the FA are archaic institutions who do not know how to move with […]

Rooney’s overhead kick wins “Premier League goal of 20 seasons” – Not convinced.

Posted  May 4, 2012  by  GM

In case you hadn’t seen the voting, Wayne Rooney has won the award for the mouthful that is the “Premier League goal of 20 seasons” with his overhead kick shin against city.  Don’t get me wrong, I wish I had a 1/1000th of the skill that Wayne possesses, and it was a really great goal, […]

God did not give you six studs to wrap around someone else’s knee. But the FA deem that kind of behaviour acceptable

Posted  April 13, 2012  by  CG

The FA announced on Tuesday that savage, potentially leg-breaking tackling is perfectly fine in the Premier League. Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli will face no retrospective action for his stamp on Arsenal’s Alex Song on Easter Sunday at the Emirates. Referee Martin Atkinson reported that he had in fact seen Balotelli’s challenge and adjudged it […]

With support like that, Wolves might as well play home games at the Hawthorns

Posted  October 25, 2011  by  CG

You can always rely on Mick McCarthy to tell it like it is. The Wolves boss has slammed some of the club’s fans for failing to get behind his players in their 2-2 draw with Swansea City at Molineux on Saturday. And like his team, Mick’s got a point. There were a lot of Wolves […]

Balotelli. What are you doing?

Posted  July 25, 2011  by  GM

Sometimes players are known for a little showboating here and there, and we accept that, in-fact, we enjoy that.  Football is a skillful game, end of story. However, every now and again you see something which defies belief.

Manchester City should welcome Carlos Tevez with open arms

Posted  February 14, 2012  by  CG

Why? Because he’s a great player. This saga has gone on for too long now and it’s time to say enough is as good as the proverbial eight course banquet. If Manchester City want to win the Premier League, they’d be wise to utilise their best players. It really is as simple as that. He’s […]
